Hill, who started 10 games this past season despite sustaining a broken forearm and finger, was limited to some light throwing and jogging during Monday and Tuesday sessiosn with approximately 35 teammates at a suburban high school, the Detroit Free Press reported.
"It's kind of been bugging me for a while, but last year, (I) was able to get through the season," Hill said. "I had a little injection before the season, and it helped me out and got me through it. This year, the injection didn't quite help, so I opted for the surgery."
Hill anticipates a full recovery from the procedure in four to six weeks.
"It's been great," Hill said. "I'm six days post-op, and I'm running a little bit. I can't throw extended stuff. The rotation, I don't want to overdo it there. But I feel great. I'm glad I did it. Wish I would have done it earlier."
"I think kind of the idea is to do a little bit more each day and, by the end of the week, hopefully, get some two-minute stuff re-installed and things like that," Hill said. "We're trying to squeeze in, I guess, 12 or 15 (Organized Team Activities) into four days here, but do it smartly and not hurt the guys."
